This coming Monday, May 21st at 6pm, I'll be the speaking at the Refresh Seattle event at the Ballard Library. My talk is brand new and called "Your Website is a Party Waiting to Happen". As the description on the site says: Lee will decode the world of online communities and boil all the hype down to the basic strategies and elements that make online communities work. You'll leave this talk with easy to remember ways to host a successful online community and/or throw one hell of a good... Continue Reading
This was my second WebVisions - a conference focused on "the future of the Web" that has happened in Portland, Oregon for the last seven years. I enjoy Webvisions and was honored to speak there this year. My talk was about how blogs, communities and mobile devices are changing the travel experience. Of course, it was all based on stories from our trip last year. The conference attracts a lot of designers and developers, along with business people working to get an understanding of the...

Webvisions is coming this week in Portland Oregon and I hope we'll see you there. From the site: Join the rockstars of design, user experience and business strategy for two days of mind-melding on what's new in the digital world. I'm going to be speaking on How Blogs and Mobile Are Changing World Travel at 2:45 on Thursday. The talk is based on our experiences in blogging our trip around the world in 2006. I'm really looking forward to seeing some old friends and making some new ones. My... Continue Reading
We've made it to Austin safely and ready for our first South-by-Southwest experience. Looking forward to seeing old friends, meeting new ones and meeting old friends that I've never actually met in person. This should be a few days of fun. We're both so bummed that we're going to miss the SXNW party that is sponsored by our good friends at Blue Flavor in Seattle as well as Bryght and Rain City Studios in Vancouver, BC. We are leaving Austin on Monday for the Community 2.0 conference. That... Continue Reading
Part of being away for 2006 was missing a lot of the un-conferences, like Bar Camp and Seattle's MindCamp, even though I was part of the early planning. Moose Camp, my first un-conference, is an un-conference in the same tradition as the others - relaxed atomosphere, open discussion, people focus, etc. My kind of event. Before the conference started, I submitted a title on the wiki for a Moose Camp talk called "New Rules for the New Communities" - and then mostly forgot about it. This morning... Continue Reading
Northern Voice is starting this Thursday and we can't wait. Honestly, it's a little scary for me personally since I will be the after-dinner entertainment for the pre-conference party at Heritage Hall. I've done informative talks, but this one is a different animal - it's after dinner, people will be drinking and they will want to be entertained. Aside from working on my dance moves, magic tricks and ventriloquism, we've been shaping up the show, which will include all sorts of multimedia,... Continue Reading
Man, it's so great to see so many community-focused conferences. Having been away for 2006, we knew we would be doing the conference circuit, but didn't know there would be such a great selection. Here's where we'll be over the next few months (in chronological order). I hope we'll see you there. This event is sold out. February 13th, Seattle, WA (I will be doing a quick talk about the trip) Northern Voice - I will provide evening entertainment for the pre-conference dinner on... Continue Reading
Why? There are a lot of great reasons... It is a "geek event that combines on-site geekery, sharing, and innovation (and drinking)." The last event featured team popsicle bridge building and 25 speakers. It's FREE It brings together fun and interesting people in Seattle. Bre and Brady are the organizers and they are the coolest. Oh, and I will be speaking Yay! Here the subject of my short talk, as listed on the site: Lee LeFever (The World Is Not Flat) - Adventures from a Year of... Continue Reading
Blogs-n-Dogs today was much less about blogs and much more about dogs. We took a break, piled into the Howling Dog Tours vans and went up into the mountains for a couple of hours of dogsledding. Being that Common Craft is not so focused on recreation, I'll point you to the entry on TwinF, Eric Rice's videos and the Flickr tag blogsledding. Great, great fun.
I'm struck by how big the subject of blogs has become. A blog itself is one thing, but the world of products, tools and services that accompany blogs is very nearly overwhelming. Subscribing to a tag on flickr with RSS is not something that tanslates easily to people new to blogging. There has been a great mix of cool tools and practical points today. Here are some highlights in list form...Darren Barefoot and Susie Gardner related these points about blog writing... It's not about the most... Continue Reading
